Welcome to Stretch Zone
Unlock your body’s full potential with Stretch Zone!
Do you feel like you are a step slower than usual? Maybe that weekly golf round is a little bit more taxing than last time or taking your groceries in from the car to the house means making multiple trips. There is a reason for that — your body needs care as you age. The best way to get that care is with the Stretch Zone Method®.
Focused on enabling you to move more functionally by re-establishing an ideal resting muscle tone, the Stretch Zone Method® doesn’t involve pulling on your extremities and creating soreness. Instead, our practitioner-assisted stretching in Birmingham makes lasting gains in flexibility and mobility by targeting your nervous system. When you change and re-educate your muscle’s nervous energy, otherwise known as the stretch reflex, you stand the best chance of eliminating your pain at its source.
That’s why it pays to visit us. The first session is free, and you see results immediately. If you free like you have been putting your life on hold due to aches and pains, we are here for you. You don’t need to be a professional athlete or work full-time in Birmingham to benefit from an assisted stretching session.

The Stretch Zone Method® addresses flexibility from a neurological perspective. This is achieved by dealing with the muscle’s nervous tension (“tonus”) to reach an optimal active range of motion. The goal is not to make a person more “flexible” or “elastic,” but rather enable you to move more functionally by re-establishing a more ideal resting muscle tone. By re-educating the associated nerve-muscle reflex, the Stretch Zone Method® leads to movement becoming easier and more efficient.
Rather than creating soreness by pulling on our limbs to extremes, the Stretch Zone Method® works through the nervous system to achieve lasting gains in flexibility and range of motion. The method rests on the notion that changing and re-educating our muscle’s nervous energy is a major factor in unleashing our body’s intended function. This nervous energy, known as the stretch reflex, is our body’s automatic defense against the dangers of over-stretching. Any movement that goes too fast or too far, or is held for too long, will cause your body to resist with the stretch reflex. Once the reflex is activated, your body has effectively said “no more” and resists the stretch. Any further attempt at stretching becomes counter productive and may even cause long term damage.
